In the exclusive sneak peek of tonight's episode of DC Cupcakes they are challenged to a bake-off with chefs from the Pentagon, and the judges, including the wife of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, decide which winning flavor will be sent to the troops in Afghanistan.

"The Pentagon kitchen is pristine and organized, exactly what you would expect it to look like," Sophie LaMontagne told

After the winning flavor was picked (you'll have to tune in to the show Friday night to find out) they had to pull an all-nighter to get the treats ready to be sent to the troops. Five thousand of the winning cupcakes were sent, along with another five thousand assorted flavors.

"We took over 800 dozen cupcake boxes to Andrews Air Force base," Sophie said.

"This is the biggest thing we've ever done and the most powerful thing we've ever done too," Katherine said.  "We had no idea how much it would mean to the troops to get a piece of home.  It was humbling."

After the cupcakes were delivered, some in the middle of the night to the men and women on the front lines in Afghanistan, Sophie and Katherine received an overwhelming response from them.

"One person sent us scarves in the mail to thank us," Sophie told  "That was so unnecessary, they're protecting our freedoms away from home and we just wanted to do something special for them."

Back-to-back episodes of DC CUPCAKES air Friday, March 4 beginning with "Shoe-in" at 10:00 PM, followed by "Operation Cupcake" at 10:30 PM on TLC.
